Jury Deliberations Continue in Kwame Kilpatrick Case; Note Sent to Judge About Extortion Charge

4798 Jurors in the Kwame Kilpatrick corruption trial finished a second day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.
The jury has spent about 13 hours deliberating the fate of Kilpatrick, his father Bernard and contractor Bobby Ferguson.

A court spokesman on Wednesday said jurors sent a question to U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds regarding an extortion charge against Kilpatrick and Ferguson.

Jurors wanted to clarify a sewer-lining contract amendment referenced in Count #3 of the 38-count indictment.

In the charge, Kilpatrick and Ferguson are accused of extorting the Detroit firm Inland Waters out of approximately $175,000.
